hi all, haven't written for a time now, but i'm back in BFG now
I was checking my ships when I realised, I don't know what to build next!
The ship i have is:
+ one ??? cruiser (I have one left to put toghter)
So what do I do now? As my primary onponent is CE, Gothic is quiet out of the question. I got 2 choices which I both finds good, but I can't choose between 'em,
1, Build a Lunar
2, Strip Armageddon's dorsal lances so it becomes a Lunar, and build a Mars for the last hull.
(I have bitz for building: Gothic, Lunar, Mars or Dictator)
Please help me out here.
Then about Grand cruisers, what do you think about them? I was think maybe after another pair of standars cruisers, I would like some bigger ships, and the GC looks as a great choice to me. I don't know which class whom is best, but I was thinking an Avenger or an Exorcist.
I'm not personally a fan of Grand Cruisers, with the partial exception of the Avenger - as a huge fan of classic naval action, I love the idea of a blockade-breaking ship with massive broadsides. The hulls don't appeal to me at all, though.
If you play Battlefleet Armageddon (which can be found in the Armada book), you can actually have 1 Battlecruiser for 1 Cruiser, allowing you to keep the Armageddon (one of my favorite ships) AND take a Mars. I would actually strip the Dictator and rebuild it as a Mars (ie, add a nova cannon & dorsal lances). Better ship overall. Then you can build that last cruiser up as a Tyrant (my other favorite ship!) or another Lunar.
Cheese...there is a lot of options , but I think i will go for my number 2, 1x Mars, 2x Lunar and 1xDictator.
I would build a Tyrant if i got the WB bitz, which I dont atm. And Mars seems better to me against Eldar than a Armageddon (thou, its one of favourites to (why couldn't my friend choose Chaos instead of Eldar :p))
PS: Is there a way to order just the Imp. weapon sprue? Cuz I want to build a Tyrant, but it feels just like more or less like a "waste" to build a gothic then. S
Not that I know of, sadly. Look for friends with the boxed set who play Chaos, or Imperial players who have Gothics (and no Tyrants) in their fleets.Originally Posted by Balthazar
This is why I have an empty Cruiser hull lying in my bitz box - waiting to find more batteries!
EDIT: Actually, I wonder if you can call up GW and ask them for just the weapon sprue? Their mail-order guys are usually incredibly helpful, and will often go out of their way to procure odd orders.
